Put all-purpose flour in a bowl. Stir in cocoa powder, baking soda, and baking powder with a whisk to get a flour mixture.

Put the cupcake mixture in the muffin pan (2/3 full).

Preheat the oven to 350°F for 12-15 minutes.

Put the muffin pan in the oven and bake for 20 minutes to get baked cupcakes.

Microwave chocolate chips in a bowl on low heat for 1 minute to get melted chocolate.

Put the remaining soy milk in a blender, then add vanilla extract, tofu, and maple syrup. Blend for 4 minutes, then add melted chocolate to the mixture to get a topping.
